    Awww guys, at least pretend like u did ur research. Dynamite is used in bodies of water in order to knock a body thats been caught in undergrowth beneath the water’s surface loose so it can float to the surface.

    Is it really kidnapping if the child consents to it and it was unintentional. I think the Dunbars were just overly emotional and searching for closure.

    My idea on this (just an opinion), if Paul and Bobby were so close maybe it wasn't much of a kidnapping by a stranger but someone that was so close to the boy they wanted Bobby for themselves? Hence why Paul wasn't even suspected to begin with and he was never mentioned again after the family left the cabin

    I think Paul murder Bobby bringing his body to the train rails to dispose of it,
    It is possible that Paul was at the back and could of actually ran bobby over,
    However this is very unlikely seen as the other boys would of heard bobby's,
    Just a theory

    What if Paul Mizzi was a sadist and child abuser? What if he somehow managed to sexually abuse him, kill him and dump him off (not in the woods tho)? Why on Earth did no one suspect him? What if the 2 other people who were there that day for the "fish fries" actually/potentially murdered/kidnapped him?

    So many questions, so less answers.....

    What I don't understand is how come the boy never said anything about his parents. If he was Bruce, he must remember as he'd been with the Andersons/Walters until then and would have said something about him not knowing who the Dunbars were.

    Aziza Ashling 22 дня назад

    It reminds me sorta of the two girls switched at birth, it wasn't found out till one if the girls was dying and before she even died the mom who was grieving the loss (or son to be loss) daughter and latched on to the thought of that other girl is my real daughter, and when the girl died she didn't take any time to grieve the child she lost at all, she started calling the other girl, her biological daughter by the name of the daughter that died and tried everything to get custody, she destroyed her other children's lives by the whole thing, destroyed her biological daughter's life. She couldn't deal with the girl she raised and loved as her daughter's death so she blocked it out and tried to replace her with a girl who biologically was hers but had been raised and loved by a different daughter and she seemed to try to act as if they were one in the same girl that she hadn't died just been "kidnapped" and clearly wanted to come home, which wasn't the case. It's a whole terrible story but yeah I think the same 'mother would rather steal a child then accept her child died' and nothing is to far or horrible, no matter who gets hurt, as long as they get to keep their delusions going.
    Like that story of two women fighting over a baby and the king saying fine we will cut the child in half and u both can have part of it, one one was satisfied with that the other immediately said she would drop all claims just dont hurt the baby and the king new she was the real mom
